Frivolous lawsuits and awards of attorney’s fees

Judge Steve Halsey
Wright County District Court

Here we go again: a disgruntled sports fan seeking relief. Following Villanova’s buzzer-beater win over North Carolina in the NCAA men’s basketball championship, a UNC fan is asking the NCAA to overturn the result, alleging the game was unfairly officiated. Maybe a lawsuit will follow. This follows on the heels of New England Patriots fans filing a federal lawsuit against the NFL to get back the team’s first round draft pick after “Deflategate.” Meanwhile, parents around the country continue to sue school districts to get their children back on varsity teams.

Charitable athletic events — how to stay on course

Lori Swanson
Minnesota Attorney General

Charitable athletic events—like walkathons, races, and mud runs—may allow donors to both help a good cause and have the gratification of competing at an athletic event. But not all events are the same. Some events have high overhead, leaving little for charity. And at least one mud run in Minnesota gave no money to the charity it promised to help.

The trilling of frogs echoes from a wooded pond. Trees, still bare though slowly speckled green, stand silent as I ride past.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Judge Steve Halsey
Wright County District Court

The Court presides over cases which involve allegations of abuse and neglect of children.  The formal description of these cases is Child in Need of Protection or Services or shortened to CHIPS cases. These cases will involve not only the children and parents but also social workers, attorneys and also a Guardian ad Litem. However, is there a role we as citizens can join which might assist to avoid the neglect or abuse which leads to a CHIPS case?
